they're supporting battles at koko on 11th october.
hopefully they'll play some other dates..
someone check their myspace. i can't cos i'm at work :(
they're very good live. yep.
they need to get an new drummer first
maybe i will then.
apparently they have a split record with japanther coming out. that will be AWESOME. i'd love them to tour over here together...
Let's do it!
A uniquely awful band.
i think they're great, they're onto something i feel.
also doing a split with Part Chimp - ahem someoooone needs to put them both on surely...?
Great great band and they're going to need a damn good new drummer to match what's on record....
I saw them once. They sounded like Blink 182, but worse somehow.
I have never 'wathcing'ed +44, no matter what backstage stories you've heard
of see that. it took me ages to get past the vocals because of the, as you say, american pop punk aesthetic (i thought it was like Green day). But once i did get past that, the music is really good, aggressive, uplifting and emotive.
You're right, I should probably try again with them. I was trying to decide whether to say Green Day or Blink 182!
But the vocals are truly dire, and the music is just too similar to pop punk with (what sounds to me) like token musical extras thrown in on top.
Not my kipper tie, ultimately.
the music isn't bad but the lead singers voice is really, really annoying.
y'all who are annoyed with the whiny guy's voice will be relieved to know the other guy sings a lot more on the new one, he has a sort of bob mould quality to his voice.
The other guy sort of reminds me of wreckgar from the transformers movie, y'know...?
